It could have gone on to Die Another Day, oh well, You Only Live Twice. The virus certainly had a Licence to Kill, what can you do, Live and Let Die and just watch the Skyfall.

Excellent!

For the booster shot - is it 6 months from the date of your first shot? Or from the date you're fully vaccinated? I've been thinking the latter, but never really thought about it till now as I'm setting up appointment.

6 months after your second shot of Pfizer.

I asked my local pharmacy if I could see the paperwork for a booster shot.  It required you to attest to having the second dose at least 6 months prior.  Said nothing about the two week delay to be fully vaccinated.

Two comments,

1) A friends brother just died from C19, unvacinated, at age 61.

2) I got my 3rd vac, booster, this past wed, pfizer.

Sad to hear.  Very few need to die.

I just wonder, when you're unvaccinated and you get the symptoms, they get worse, you're admitted to the hospital... and then you see them rolling a ventilator toward you.  What are you thinking at that moment.

I have several friends who are still deniers.  I always sit at least 8 feet from them and wear my mask.

That's awful.   I'm very sorry.

We have some pretty bad anti-vaxxers two doors down.  Two kids in middle school.   The whole family got it a while back.   Of course they found a place that prescribed Ivermectin and they won't get vaxxed when they should.   How do I know this?   They came back from Costco, which is pretty strict with masks, and came up to several of us on our street gleefully saying they defied the mask mandate at Costco and laughed about all of it.   What f***ing losers.

Some good trends overall.   Hot spots moving north and west though  

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/us/covid-cases.html

  • Reports of new cases continue to trend steadily downward. Around 86,000 cases are being identified each day, down from more than 160,000 daily at the beginning of September.
  • While most of the country is rebounding from the summer case surge, trouble spots remain. Colorado, Vermont and Michiganare among a handful of states seeing sustained case growth.
  • The situation continues to improve in the South, the region that suffered the worst this summer. Florida now has one of the lowest average daily case rates in the country.

My wife already made an appointment for our kids.   We're both excited knowing that they will be protected.

    • My college was about 50% Natalie's cost. An order of magnitude would be crazy. I don't think that rule of thumb holds up. 10x over 20-25 years? That's so far out of whack I can't imagine it. Denison costs about $75,000 per year. No way it cost only $7500 in 1996. Allegheny almost as much, and no way did it cost < $7k 25 years ago. It's gone up but I have no belief it's an order of magnitude.
    • Definitely better and different than at the 2017 Newport Cup. Good work. This amount of change is hard.
    • Sadly, a rule of thumb on tuition is an order of magnitude per generation. When I was a freshman at WPI, my roommate and I were paying $6000 tuition. His dad, who went to WPI, pay $600. Now it $60,000. And frankly, it’s not like the school is worth a 1000% more now.  I would only agree to forgiveness or help where the loans were predatory in nature. There have been instances of this, especially in the for-profit universities. But the cost has to be reined in. It’s far greater than inflation would justify.
    • My go to ball is the Snell MTB Black (great ball at a great price).  Characteristics and performance are comparable to the below balls I also play. I’ll buy the ZStar (buy 2, get 1) and TP5x (buy 3, get 1) when they’re on sale.  I also really like the ProV1, but only play them when I get them as a gift.
    • I don’t see anything wrong with your bag.  Maybe just continue messing around with longer clubs until you find something you really like?   Not sure an extra club in your scoring clubs is necessary either.  I think the best way to tighten up that end of the bag is working on flighted shots.
